Zend Optimizer is a tool, which is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular app that is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of organizations which develop paid script applications, so if you obtain such an application for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to secure your code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to change it in whatever way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better due to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it's already optimized and will be executed more quickly.
